Open Source Software (OSS): Ensure Effective Due Diligence Is Carried Out in M&A Transactions

Black Duck Software Press Releases - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 16:30
Webinar

With software pervading virtually every industry and mergers and other types of acquisitions (M&A) on the rise, it is now more important than ever for businesses to ensure effective due diligence is carried out in M&A transactions. Depending on how OSS is used, and depending on how well an organization manages the unique license obligations potentially arising from such use,  the use of OSS can cause inadvertent dilution  or even loss of the organization’s intellectual property (IP) assets and hence of the value of the transaction. As a result, the acquiring business’s legal and engineering teams need a fast, secure and thorough analysis of software assets when a M&A transaction is in motion.
Join Mark Wittow, Partner at K&L Gates, Brandon Woods, Associate at K&L Gates, and Matthew Jacobs, General Counsel at Black Duck to gain insights on defined strategies and processes for evaluating open source issues and software assets within the scope of corporate mergers and acquisitions. Attendees will learn: 

  • Why technical due diligence is important in software company M&A transactions
  • What steps are involved in the diligence process
  • Challenges and common concerns of acquirers and investors
  • Risk allocation - reps and warranties, disclosure schedule, closing conditions
  • Coordinating resolution of technical and legal issues - remediation plans and other solutions

5 Steps to Ensuring Compliance in the Software Supply Chain: The Harman Case Study

Black Duck Software Press Releases - Thu, 08/07/2014 - 16:30
Webinar

Harman designs, manufactures and markets premier audio, visual, infotainment and integrated
control solutions for the automotive, consumer and professional markets.  As a technology leader and innovator with leading brands such as AKG®, Harman Kardon®, Infinity®, and JBL®, the Company is admired by audiophiles, musicians and the entertainment venues where they perform. More than 25 million automobiles on the road today are equipped with HARMAN audio and infotainment systems.

One of Harman’s biggest challenges when supplying its systems is ensuring it can prove its code complies with applicable license terms. The code must also be free of security and quality risks that could impact the integrity of the finished products.

But what happens when the code is open source? While software developed in-house can be closely monitored, software that comes in through third parties is harder to track. How can Harman accurately report on operational and legal risks for components and projects it didn’t develop?

Join this webinar with Alyssa Harvey Dawson, Vice President Legal, Global Intellectual Property at Harman, and Black Duck Software, who will discuss:

  • Current open source trends
  • An in-depth review of popular licenses (including GPL)
  • Open source compliance: Harman’s take
  • Beyond compliance – the impact of security and technical risks
